New Delhi: Steel Authority of India has taken a unique initiative that will make garbage redressal systems of the cities smarter than they are. Under the initiative, steel PSU has launched smart garbage bins made of Stainless Steel, which will be able to send a signal to the collection vehicle about the “fill-up” position. First of such kind of smart stations will be set up at BhikajiCama Place of the country’s capital Delhi. Environment-friendly garbage bins made of SAIL SALEM Stainless Steel will be installed in the underground RCC pits in this Smart Garbage Station, which will not only collect unbridled garbage of the city but will also save people from stink and diseases.
SMART and good looking garbage bins
These Smart Garbage Stations will not only give a smart look to the cities but will also help to promote the image of Clean India around the world. SAIL also has plans to supply Stainless Steel garbage bins to another Smart Garbage Station being developed in North Delhi by North Delhi Municipal Corporation (NDMC) at Kamala Nagar.
In the Smart Garbage Stations, there will be an RCC pit in which the stainless steel bins will be placed. There will be separate bins for recyclable wastes and non-recyclable wastes. Since the bins will be placed underground, the pit will be covered with a pit cover fabricated out of stainless steel slip free sheets. Suitable openings will be kept on the pit cover through which the sanitation crew can dump the collected garbage into the stainless steel bins placed underground.
It is planned to have IOT (Internet of Things) enabled Gazelle sensors on the pit cover which will transmit the signals to the collection vehicle about the “fill-up” position. The compactor will lift the stainless steel bins from the underground pits and empty the garbage into the compactor vehicle.
